Do I really need a server?
If you are looking to get your web project online, 1&1 are your best choice for web hosting and server hosting, no matter how large or small your project. As to whether renting a web server from 1&1 would be suitable and indeed necessary for your project, this would really depend on the size and scope of your proposed or existing web project. For a relatively small company website or personal blog, for instance, it would be more appropriate for you to look into 1&1’s web hosting offers. For larger projects, particularly those which are internationally focused, hosting several versions of a site in different languages, and those providing significant amounts of information, it is definitely worth considering seeking the support of a server solution. Whatever your server requirements, 1&1 have the solutions for you with various options available, allowing you to customise the components of your package – those being computing power, storage and service options.
